Antisana Bike and Hike Tour
Ecuador is a country with many volcanoes, so when Cotopaxi started to erupt and the national park shut down, we decided to make our switch over to another one of our untouched mountains, Antisana.
This exciting one day mountain bike tour is designed to provide a unique experience of this breathtaking ecological reserve. As you ride along beautiful trails, you can enjoy the mesmerizing mountain scenery around them, and also have the opportunity to see Condors and Alpacas. This volcano is also surrounded by striking lagoons that tend to reflect the Antisana peaks giving you unique picture opportunities.
